Savage model 99

Kicking around the idea of picking up a Savage model 99 lever action rifle. Ive been on a lever kick lately. I would really like one in 300 Savage, but might be interested in one in 243 or 308 as well. Would prefer one with the safety on the lever, but One on the tang wouldnít be a deal breaker. Rough condition is fine, as long as itís functional. Seller close to Frederick a bonus, but willing to travel a little bit, for the right price/deal.
Let me know what you got.
Thanks.

Cant help you out as I am not giving mine up but a few thoughts.

1. I never got .300 savage, its got such as short neck and not great for reloading.
2. Don't discount .303 savage its a soft cartridge but a pleasure to shoot not an issue if you reload.
3. Get a takedown if you can
4. Remember that anything that has been drilled for a scope will have very little collectors value.

I know United has a couple on the rack but I believe they all had replacement buttpads which is a no-no to collectors.

Thanks, for the info. Yeah, Iíve seen the ones in unitedís ads. Iíve read up on the 303 savage, the only reason I wanted to avoid it, was that it is similar to 30-30 in power. If thatís the case, Iíd just use my Winchester model 94, as this gun would be used mostly for deer hunting. The 300 is closer to 308 in power, and I kinda like the now oddball caliber.

If you ever get down to the Shore, Littleton has a few. An if in DE Steele's normally has 6-8, always call first.

.300 Savage can be easily made from .308 Winchester brass. .303 Savage ammo and brass is very hard to find.

Good Luck

Jerry
